Product Description

From Booklist

Gr. 6-9. The saga continues in the fifth book in the Warriors series as the cat Fireheart, now deputy leader of Thunderclan, finds himself taking on even more responsibility because clan-leader Bluestar is both physically and mentally ill. Add to that the dangerous machinations of treacherous Tigarstar, the head of Shadowclan, and a pack of renegade dogs. Bluestar becomes certain that all the members of her clan, including Fireheart, have betrayed her; the ancestral Starclan cats have abandoned her; and Windclan is hunting in Thunderclan's territory. After Bluestar declares war, it's up to Fireheart to find a way to avoid the battle. Hunter maintains the established characterizations of his sentient cats, who still retain their feline natures. With compelling intrigue and fast-paced actions, this is one of the most exciting books in the series--and, happily, there's another volume to come. Sally Estes

I've read all the Warriors books, and loved every one. But I must say this is the best. Up until now, Warriors #3: Forest of Secrets was one of the greatest books I've ever read, but this passes even that up! First I have to say a few things about the series. When you see a virtually unknown set of books, especially by a rather unorigional name like Warriors, you might wonder if the books are worth reading. These definately are! All of them are very descripitive and really are what many English teachers might call "Good Literature". But, just to let you know, you HAVE to read them in order.
So, anyway, about this installment itself...
When I first started reading it, it seemed so similar to the other books in the series that I thought this one would be pretty boring. But after the first chapter, I was proved very wrong. Dangerous Path actually turned out to be the most interesting and different of them all. Bluestar has completely lost faith in her clan, and in the warrior ancestors, so Fireheart finds himself pretty much leading Thunderclan. The relationship between him and Sandstorm is unsteady, and leads to some difficulties. But Fireheart's biggest problem is the mysterious dog--or dogs--that have invaded the forest. A young cat is horribly mauled, another killed by the dogs. Also Tigerstar, Fireheart's worst enemy is growing more venomous, and is planning horrible revenge on Thunderclan. The plot builds to an exciting climax, and a very sad ending. Along the way, the characters are becoming much more developed than they were in any other Warriors book, which is one of the reasons that this installment is my favorite.

Out of all the Warriors books I have read, I have to say, this is by far the best of her books I have read. There are so many new things happening in this book. New warriors, new apprentices, the return of an old friend, great evil leading a clan, quite a few deaths, a new and great threat in the forest where the hunters of the forest are being hunted, and the rising of a new great leader. Bluestar now understands what Spottedleaf ment when she said "Fire alone will save our clan,"
One thing I have been waiting for a long time in this series since like the 3rd book is that it is begining to be more obvious that Sandstorm and Fireheart are falling in love. This is something from the book, which I consider my favorite part:
Fireheart felt too full of emotion to answer. he strecthed out his head to press against her flank, and to his delight she did not move away. Instead she looked up at him again, and he felt as if he were drowning in the depths of her green gaze. "I'm sorry, Sandstorm," he murmured. "I never meant to hurt you." His voice barely more than a whisper, he added, "I love you."
Sandstorm's eyes glowed. "I love you too, Fireheart," she whispered.
(...)
Now, if you want more excitment, then read the book! But if you haven't read any 1,2,3, or 4 yet, read those first, or you won't understand a thing! ^_^

I just finished this book and was stunned.(In a good way). A lot goes on in this book. You see Yellowfang but she doesn't come back to life. The ending was sad when a truely important cat dies but what this cat says when he or she dies (I'm NOT telling!)but what she says is so wonderful great and powerful. Theirs faith,love and good parts. If I gave you the impression its a dark bad book it isn't! Theirs an exciting battles and not just with cats. You find out through the book secrets you would never guess.Graystripe gets a fairly big part in the book.unfortuanly so does Tigerstar.Bramblekit and Tawnykit become apprentices. Their also is some leader changing!Cloudpaw is in love. The Fireheart-and -Sandstorm relationship is more noteicble wich I'm so happy about! If you want the book that has it all than read this! It has excitement romance drama and every other thing a great book should have book should have!So if you've read the 1,2,3 and 4 GET READING (If you can get a coppy,) Also If you havn't read the other please READ THEM IN ORDER!!!!!!!!! OK thast thing if you really don't want to waste money on it just go to a book store and read a chapter or two to see if you like it. though you probably will love it!!!!!!!!!! Actully its so good it's most likely you'll love it!!!!!!
So if you like Redwall Guardians of GA'Hoole or any other good fantasy get reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's for your own good!!!!!!!!!!!!

The book picks up where the last one left off, where Tigerstar is introducing himself as ShadowClan's new leader. But he is only one side-plot that makes up this whole complicated book in this wonderful series.
With his leader unbalanced and unable or willing to do anything to help her clan, Fireheart takes matter into his own paws. He must deal with the new threat of Tigerstar and his quickly strengthening clan, the hidden and mysterious threat of an enemy that calls through his dreams "Pack, pack! Kill, kill!", and anger coming from both RiverClan and WindClan. Fireheart even goes behind his leader's back! Can Fireheart face the new threats that lay all around him?
This book was okay but not as good as the others. It annoys me how Sandstorm and Cinderpelt keep fighting for Fireheart's attention, Bluestar's sanity continues to spiral downward (the whole book I was thinking "She's not doing anybody any good, will someone just kill her and let Fireheart take over!"), that, no matter how many times Fireheart screws something up or somehow loses the trust of his clan, they always forgive and forget after a week, and the hidden enemy is portrayed as stupid and dumb when they are actually very lovable creatures.
Though the ending is very perdictable, it was sweet and the cats actually came up with a good plan. The ending, though perdictable, keeps you tight is its grip, I could not put it down! The ust (unresolved sexual tension) between two cats is resolved and a new, though somewhat surprising, relationship is sprouted between two other cats.
Cant wait for the next book (is it the last? *cries*). A definate must read book and series for cat lovers anywhere!
